HONDURAS FOOTBALL HISTORY

The Honduras national football team, nicknamed Los Catrachos, La Bicolor or La H, is the national team of Honduras and is controlled by the Federación Nacional Autónoma de Fútbol de Honduras (FENAFUTH). They are a rising team in CONCACAF, an ascent that started with their third place finish in the 2001 Copa América, where they were a late invitee, due to a withdrawal by Argentina one day prior to kickoff. To date, the team has qualified four times for the finals of the FIFA World Cup, in 1982, 1986,2010 and 2014.

Honduras contests the Central America derby against Costa Rica. Honduras has lost most of the matches of this fixture, winning 20 times to Costa Rica's 22 victories.

The national team made its debut in the Independence Centenary Games held in Guatemala City in September 1921, losing 10–1 to Guatemala.[2]

During their first appearance at the Central American and Caribbean Games in 1930, Honduras posted a record of two wins and three losses. Their only wins came against Jamaica (5–1) and El Salvador (4–1), while they lost two games to Cuba and Costa Rica.

Honduras won the 1981 CONCACAF Championship and qualified for the World Cup for the first time in 1982. They finished second in the 1985 CONCACAF Championship losing their final match 2 to 1 against Canada, who would eventually qualify to the 1986 FIFA World Cup. Their next major accomplishment was being runner-ups at the 1991 CONCACAF Gold Cup losing against host nation, United States. For the 1998 FIFA World Cup, Jamaica's merits left Honduras out of the final round of qualification. Despite Honduras' overwhelming victory 11 to 3 against St.Vincent & the Grenadines, Jamaica defeated Mexico in Kingston. The scoreless draw from Jamaica's visit to Honduras ultimately allowed the Reggae Boys to advance to the next round. Hopes changed for 2002 as Honduras advanced to the hexagonal round. Despite Honduras effort, they were left at the edge of the 2002 FIFA World Cup losing at home against Trinidad & Tobago, and at the Azteca against Mexico, in their final two games of the qualifiers. The match against Trinidad saw Honduras hit the goal post seven times, but despite their effort they lost by the minimum amount. The second World Cup appearance was in the 2010 FIFA World Cup when Honduras strikingly qualified by their victory away at El Salvador and Costa Rica's tie against the USA. Their third and most recent World Cup appearance was the 2014 FIFA World Cup, where they defeated Mexico at Azteca on their way on qualifying. Honduras has won the UNCAF Nations Cup three times in 1993, 1995 and 2011.
